A letter to my daughters on Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day, Time Magazine featured letters from Celebrity Moms to their daughters. This inspired me to write my own letter to my daughters.

To my girls….My inspiration

Did you know you girls are my inspiration? I wanted to take a few moments this Mother’s Day to let you know how much you both mean to me. I’m so proud to be your mom. When I was a teenager, like most kids my age I said “I’m not having kids!” Not because I didn’t like kids, but because for some reason I thought having kids meant life was over and I wouldn’t be able to do things that made me happy. How selfish was that and boy was I wrong. Without trying you changed my life. A huge part of my life began when I became your mom. I had a new view of life and was inspired like never before to follow my dreams and to make sure that I was the best example for you.

There are a few things I want you to know. It’s so important to me that you both know who I am and what I stand for and believe in…to know my heart. No other title I could ever have would be more important than being a wife and your mother. Whether we are having impromptu dance parties, taking our morning rides to school every morning or when you curl up with me in bed. Every day I spend with you is truly a gift. I know you will grow older and won’t think I’m cool anymore or be unhappy with the tough decisions I make on your behalf, but remember I’m your mom and I love you more than life itself.

I love you girls…love mom.
